Santa Cruz Little League

Volunteer Opportunities

Santa Cruz Little League is an entirely volunteer-run organization. WE NEED YOUR HELP to ensure a great experience for our kids. Please find a role that interests you, and raise your hand. Contact anyone on the Board of Directors to find out more. 

Who can volunteer?

Anyone can apply to become a volunteer. Whatever talents or skills you have, we can use them! All parents of children involved in Little League Baseball are strongly encouraged to volunteer.

When you apply to become a volunteer, you give SCLL the right to conduct necessary background checks. On rare occasions, the league may deny individuals the privilege of volunteering for reasons, past or present, that may be detrimental to the players and the league. 


What can I volunteer to do?

No experience is required to become a volunteer. Most of the volunteer opportunities require little or no training. SCLL will provide you with any necessary training (as well as lots of support and encouragement). What you see during games is a mere fraction of what you can do as a volunteer. You can volunteer to help in virtually any aspect of the league. See the list of some of the volunteer roles below. 

How can I become a volunteer?

Anyone planning to set foot on the baseball field or help with the team in any capacity must be cleared as a volunteer. This includes managers, coaches, team parents, scorekeepers, game coordinators, and parents who help in any way during a practice or game.

It's easy to get cleared. You can: 

1.) Fill out the quick and easy volunteer application while you are registering your player.

2.) Or you can also fill out a volunteer application online anytime by hitting the "register" button on the website in the upper right corner. 

Once completed, you'll be notified by JDP, the official screening partner of Little League. 

Parents and prospective volunteers can also email SCLL Volunteer Coordinator Jacob Bolotin at [email protected] with questions or to start the volunteer background check process at any time. 

SCLL strongly encourages all adults affiliated with a team to complete the volunteer application. You never know when you might need to step up and help!

Background Checks

Little League International requires its local leagues to annually conduct a nationwide background check on its volunteers as part of its Child Protection Program. Parents and anyone else interested in volunteering must annually complete, sign, and submit a Little League Volunteer Application along with a government-issued photo ID to SCLL in order for the league to conduct a full criminal background check and other state requirements.

This is required for all potential managers, coaches, local Board members, and any other persons, volunteers, and/or hired workers who provide regular services to SCLL or who have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams.

SCLL uses an online background check service and you will be emailed a personal link to start the process, but you can see the type of information that you'll be asked to provide by looking at this manual Little League Volunteer application.
